FOR AN EXTENDED RUN UNTIL 6TH AUGUST
Due to popular demand, Phoebe Eclair-Powell's "vivid, vital" new play FURY will be extending its run until 6th August.
The world premiere of a chilling and powerful modern Medea by Phoebe Eclair-Powell, FURY has received remarkable acclaim from both critics and audiences, described in the Independent as "powerful and horribly persuasive."
‘"An absolute triumph and a must-see."
"A vivid, vital 70 minutes. Impressive."
"Powerful and horribly persuasive…this is a provocative piece that will keep you arguing long afterwards."
"Eclair-Powell shows herself to be a considerable talent…a stylish and fluid in-the-round production."
★★★★ Evening Standard
This is Sam. Young, impulsive, single mum. Londoner born and bred and never ever left. Sam makes her mistakes, but who can blame her?
Tom rents the flat above, the one Sam cleans. If they can come to ‘an arrangement’ he won’t call the Social on her.
You might think Tom is a monster. You might think Sam’s kids would be better off without her. Someone needs to make a decision.
Shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award and winner of the Soho Theatre Young Writer’s Award, FURY is a chilling and powerful modern Medea about motherhood and class, taking an unapologetic look at the single young mum, the one already judged before she’s even opened her mouth.
Director Hannah Hauer-King is co-founder of Damsel Productions alongside producer Kitty Wordsworth. This follows their 2015 hit DRY LAND at Jermyn Street Theatre. Phoebe Eclair-Powell is resident writer at Soho Theatre, and writer behind the highly acclaimed WINK at Theatre 503.
